What is the Media Library?

The NEI Media Library is a free multimedia collection developed by NEI with feedback from some of our trusted partners. The library provides engaging, scientifically accurate eye health images and videos to NEI partners, media professionals, and members of the general public.

All images and videos in the library are free of charge. Anyone can use them for free in health campaigns, reports, and other health-related materials in print or online, with just a few restrictions:

  • Give credit to NEI: Please credit National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health (NEI/NIH) when you use any image or video from the library.
  • No commercial use: That means you can’t use photos or videos from this library for advertising, marketing, or promoting a product.
